I told you we had 3 Holiday crafts, thanks to Home Depot. Well, here is our 3rd! A DIY Holiday Ornament Display. We created our own design and used our favorite holiday colors. (Which went with the other 2 crafts).
This craft is very easy for any age level and fun for the whole family to create. Remember these DIY/DIH Home Depot Workshops are designed to provide a mix of associate led demonstration and some hands-on learning. Then you can grab the materials sheet, and purchase the items to make your own project. (For more information, contact your local Home Depot store.)
For materials you will need:
- 1 – 1 ? x 8 ? x 12 ? Common Board
- 1 – 1 ? x 6 ? x 8 ? Common Board
- 1 – 1 ? x 4 ? x 6 ? Common Board
- 1 – Box #8 x 11?4 Phillips Square Drive Flat-Head Full Thread Zinc Coated Multi-Material Screw
- 1 – 27 Count Multi-Pack Ornaments
For tools, you will need some type of saw that you are comfortable with (we used a miter saw), a glue gun & sticks, a tape measure and a drill. Optional items are a sand block and paint or stain.
To start, you will want to measure and mark (3) 48-inch sections from the 1x8x12 board, and (2) 48-inch sections from the 1x6x8 board. For this, I asked the worker in Home Depot to help me. He was more than willing, so if you have a smaller vehicle or maybe a little timid on cutting, just ask for help.
Now you will lay all 5 of the 48-inch boards next to each other, side by side, alternating the 6-inch and 4-inch wide boards. Center one 30-inch board horizontally across the five 48-inch boards about 3 1? 2 inches down from the top, and secure using two wood screws in each board. Repeat on the bottom with the remaining 30-inch board.
You are all done! Now you can paint or stain the wood. I tried to be creative and use painters tape and stripes. Clearly, I am a better idea person than a painter ha. We decided to stick with the Christmas theme colors we had chosen for the Centerpiece & Stocking Post, which was Behr Marquee Copper Moon(sample size) , Behr Marquee January Garnet and Rust-Oleum Gold Glitter Spray Paint. I found cheap plastic bulbs in the same colors, plus a pack of battery operated lights. A little glue and we have a beautiful holiday decoration. (The presents are just a wrapped empty box and the battery pack for the lights). We used pine cones from outside for our trunk.
That is it, I hope you enjoy creating your own Holiday Ornament Display! If you need a printable version, just click the photo below to open a PDF.
